Introduction to the Standard Template Library (STL)—with applications
Welcome to the download pages for "Introduction to the STL—with applications", a report
completed in 1999 as part of the graduate program in Computer Science at the University of Copenhagen.
From here, you can download the entire report in
format (zipped) and the accompanying
in plain text format.
The report is concerned with the Standard Template Library (the STL)—a recent extension to the ANSI
C++ standard—and describes the components of that library
in fairly short, summarizing chapters, generously
interspersed with code examples, all of which are available from these pages.
In addition, the report includes two sizeable applications demonstrating use of the STL
and an appendix on the use of templates in C++.
